Digital Media Event
WATERLOO, ON, April 21 /CNW/ - OpenText (NASDAQ: OTEX) (TSX: OTC) will
provide a social networking platform to connect attendees and
presenters before, during and after the Canada 3.0 2011 digital media
forum www.canada30.ca being held in Stratford, Ontario May 2-4. The social networking
software is the same solution that OpenText provided for delegates at
both the Toronto and Korea G-20 Summits held in 2010 (http://www.opentext.com/2/global/press-release-details.html?id=2437) and now customized for the Canada 3.0 forum.
"As a Platinum sponsor of the Canada 3.0 2011 forum and major proponent
of digital media progress in Canada, OpenText is pleased to provide a
social collaboration tool that will make connecting attendees,
presenters and other subject matter experts easier and more efficient,"
said Eugene Roman, Chief Technology Officer at OpenText.
OpenText's Social Workplace solution opentext.com/otsw will be accessible from mobile devices on-site, linking more than 3,000
past and new attendees and enabling them to share ideas and converse
with presenters from the conference. Participants can access the
OpenText application from their BlackBerrys, iPhones and iPads at http://talk.canada30.com/login.
The social collaboration software will ensure that attendees have at
their fingertips everything they need to get the most out of the Canada
3.0 forum, including access to the agenda, room locations, subjects and
speakers in the eight sector tracks, and more. Most importantly, the
secure social media platform will enable participants to not only

social networking tools, OpenText developed a platform with
enterprise-strength security controls," said Roman. "Our Social

the Interactive Showcase area of the forum showcasing the latest ECM
solutions. Tom Jenkins, OpenText Executive Chairman and Chief Strategy
Officer, who is also Chair of the Advisory Board for the Canadian
Digital Media Network, will be among those officially welcoming
attendees to the forum.
